Windows7 64-bit printer compatibility

Postby artisan » Wed Dec 01, 2010 10:10 am

Hi all,

I´m about to buy a new PC but I´m unsure which version of windows 7 to have installed - 32bit or 64bit ?

I have an Epson R3000 printer and my concern is that it may not function correctly with W7 64bit.

Would welcome some help and advice.

Hmm, I can't find an R3000 on the Epson site; the closest appears to be the R2880. Your best bet is to check the Epson site for drivers and also to check the Windows 7 Compatibility Center 64bit Inkjet printer listing. If you actually have an Epson Stylus Color 3000 Inkjet Printer then this page says you are in luck.

Thanks for the reply Bob.

According to the W7 compatibility centre I´m good to go 64bit with a free download.

Cheers for the links.
